Lovely thai steamboat

I was meeting *Celine for dinner tonight, so since she craved for steamboat and I have been wanting to try Thai steamboat (aka Mookata), we decided to dine at Tom Yum Kungfu at Boat Quay area.

It was a very casual and nondescript casual restaurant done up to resemble the ones in Thailand itself, apparently. Thai music was blasting and the wait staff were scurrying about while diners happily enjoyed their meals.

We ordered the Steamboat Set (SGD$39.90) to share - the one for 2-3 persons. These are the vegetables - consisting of golden mushrooms, vermicelli (dong fen), fried beancurd skin (tau ghee) and an assortment of greens. I enjoyed the fresh vegetables but also must commend on the fried tofu skin - despite having been oversoaked in the soup for too long a period , it was still crunchy upon consumption.

The meat platter consisted of pork lard cubes, beef, fishcakes, shrimps, scallops and pork. All the well marinated ingredients were charred to deliciousness state by our own hands.

And this is one of their signature items - the Deep Fried Kangkong (SGD$13.00) that came with some deep fried shrimps. The vegetables were probably coated with flour, and yes they were crispy. Though, tasteless - there was where the spicy-sour dip served separately came into play. While I enjoyed this, I still prefer the usual stir-fried sambal kangkong...

Thai Steamboat with BBQ

Yummy soup base, and grill at the top dome.  It was so good to have it during the rainy day.  The order is by ala carte set.  Sometimes, it can be quite long queue.  

However, the other time, I went back again, I couldn't locate this place.  It's rather difficult to see among all other shophouses.

Above Average, Affordable Thai Mookata

Full Tom Yum Kungfu  review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/05/tom-yum-kungfu.html


Tom Yum Kungfu is a Thai inspired casual restaurant, focusing on serving authentic and affordable Thai cuisine. Known for their generous portioned dishes at decent prices, Tom Yum Kungfu usually draw crowds during peak dining hours, and queuing is a norm.

Decor at Tom Yum Kungfu is post-modern yet retro, with Andy Warhol inspired pictures, and mulit-coloured light bulbs. Overall ambience at Tom Yum Kungfu is noisy, poorly ventilated, yet comfortable and open.

Because Tom Yum Kungfu tends to operate mostly in semi coffee shop settings, Tom Yum Kungfu staff tend to be brusque / to the point. Service is generally fast and efficient, albeit loud and without finesse. Expect heartland style service.

The menu at Tom Yum Kungfu is diverse in range. Focusing on Thai speciality dishes, Tom Yum Kungfu mostly serves ala-carte, communal / sharing portions. They are also known for their Thai style combination steamboat and grill, also known as Mookata.

Prices at Tom Yum Kungfu, in comparison to other Thai restaurants, is generally cheaper and more affordable. Even their Mookata is slightly cheaper than other places. Expect to pay between SGD $15 - $25 per person, for Thai food which is tasty, is served in large portions, and is good value for money.

Mookata is an all-in-one steamboat and grill, with the soup / broth in a shallow trough below, and a curved grill top above. The idea is that during grilling, the meat and seafood juices will flow down and flavour the soup! The Mookata Pot here uses good quality charcoal, and comes with some aromatics like corn and cabbage. The original soup stock is MSG free, and starts quite bland, but gets more robust after cooking.

This place has no buffet, only ala-carte sets... but the Mookata Set Large (SGD $44.90) is good enough for 3 - 4 people, plus there is no GST! All sets are served with sliced pork belly, pork loin, prawns, scallops, fish cake, and a vegetable basket. I love that the food here is completely fresh, and properly handled by staff!

The Mookata Vegetable Basket is served with kang kong / water spinach, cabbage, golden mushrooms, pea sprouts / dou miao, bok choy / chinese cabbage / xiao bai cai, bean skin, and cellophane noodles.

The duo Thai Dipping Chili Sauce & Seafood Sauce enhance your meal... use the tangy Seafood Sauce for dipping any seafood items or vegetables, while the spicy Thai Chili Sauce is great with grilled meats.

One of the best mookata!

The selection for the mookata ingredients were wide and varied. The meat was well marinated and the soup base flavourful. The seafood was fresh as well.

On top of the mookata ingredients, Tom Yum Kungfu offers cooked food as well. The mango salad was flavoursome and a tad spicy but I would have preferred the mango to be a little harder and crunchier. I loved the cashew nuts that topped the mango salad.

The Thai Iced Tea and lemongrass drink were refreshing too. Worth a visit!

Nicely marinated meat and delicious soup

Good quality Mookata which you can easily access after work!

They serve up nicely marinated meat and delicious soup. But be prepared to smell like barbeque pork after your meal here! We tried the outdoor seats too and we ended up smelling less like bbq pork, but we still do, slightly.

But i felt that the Thai ice milk tea was disappointing. Beer isn't expensive tho.

For more pictures and iinfo, see here: http://ttimetreats.com/2013/12/30/thai-steamboat-mookata-which-is-better/

I've done a comparison with another Mookata restaurant and the conclusion is obvious.
